I haven't been to Belfast enough times to recommend any good restaurants, fast-food places and take away's, but you can find amazing places on Conor's blog.


If you are travelling on a budget, you can stay in many hostels, B&B's and inns that the city offers. The two places I highly recommend are:

  • Premier Inn - Titanic Headquarters

  • Europa Hotel

Both places have amazing food, great views and are so good for the money.

If you have more budget available, you could treat yourself to a stay in:

  • Grand Central Hotel (4-star)

  • Malmaison Hotel (4-star)

  • Titanic Hotel (4-star)
